My secret Sophie is winging its way to its recipient as I write this and may even arrive before the new year!
I have been practicing a technique shown to me by @Mocha and have produced. Number of these this year so its only fitting that my SS be one of them.
The present is actually a 6 sided die from dice jail for too many 1's so for its trouble it has been incarcerated in greenstuff wrapping paper!
I modified Rocky a little bit to flatten his wings to more of a waiting position.
As for the story, Rocky has been asked to wait for his present and he intends to make sure it does not get away!
I enjoyed making the little bow much more than I should have but it was a lot of fun. The Rocky series is great. The eyes are just large enough to get some real detail into without overwhelming the mini and ever part of the mini is accessible to paint!
I hope his recipient likes him and that he reminds everyone that good things will come with a little bit of patience
2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others. A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.
I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color. He goes out in the mail on Monday
Hope you like him too...
A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts
I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!
Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received
continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier. I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest. This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series . I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave. (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there. The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon. Interesting but not what i wanted. Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!
She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice! About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:
I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill. I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
Hope you enjoy them!
